The End Of Spotting In Changi

Mon Nov 20, 2006 12:29 pm

Since I work at the airport now, I have observed these subtle changes that are slowly but surely putting an end to spotting aircraft...

- Terminal 2's new public viewing gallery is not really one as it looks down into airside. Not ideal for photo taking.

- Terminal 1 just lost the viewing gallery that is parallel to Rwy 02R/20L. Now they are either building some more offices or something but it is blocked off. So only ONE viewing gallery that looks into the tarmac between D and C concourse now exists.

- Double fencing is going up around the perimeter of the airport so no more poking of lenses through the airport fence.

Sad day for me...

Unfortunately thanks to the wonderful terrorists these days spotting is becoming a thing of the past...I feel sorry for the young aviation enthusiasts today. Unless you have a ticket is is very hard to get anyone past security without some kind of pass unlike when I was a kid and used to go down on my own to get a better look at airplanes when my parents were picking someone up at the airport. Obviously this was a time you could let your kid go somewhere alone without too much concern..The world might be more technological but it is not better not by a long shot.
